Norwell, MA (PressExposure) January 14, 2010 -- Plymouth's 1st annual holiday window decorating contest in the downtown business district featured a $500 prize, donated by The Plymouth Growth and Development Corporation, for the business or organization whose window decorations garnered the most votes. Enterprising fundraisers at Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plymouth wanted to compete in the contest to aid in their ongoing fundraising efforts but were thwarted by the lack of a downtown Plymouth storefront to decorate.
Advanced Mortgage Services, with 3 storefront windows at their 25 Main Street offices, offered an ideal location for Habitat volunteers to ply their magical decorating skills. Eager to partner with Habitat, Advanced Mortgage Services not only agreed to let Habitat use their windows to decorate, but also upped the ante by offering to double Habitat's prize if they won the contest.
For Brian Comer, President of Norwell and Plymouth based Advance Mortgage Services, the contest represented more than just window dressing, "We're in the business of helping folks become homeowners. By partnering with Habitat we'll be contributing in a small way to someone becoming a new homeowner down the road. We were pleased to have this opportunity to help out."
One of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plymouth's upcoming projects will include building a new Habitat home on South Street in Plymouth, a project that Comer hopes Advanced Mortgage Services employees will also aid with some sweat equity when building gets underway later this year.
